Donate Your Vehicle In New Orleans, LA To Help The Kids Of Make-A-Wish Texas Gulf Coast & Louisiana

Do you want to help kids in your very own community? Do you want to do something that is going to make you feel good for years to come?

If you do, then we have the perfect solution for you, and all you need to do is donate an old car that you no longer need. Wheels For Wishes is a vehicle donation program benefiting Make-A-Wish® Gulf Coast.

Our charity vehicle donation program helps turns cars, trucks, motorcycles, SUVs, RVs, and even boats into wishes for children in the New Orleans, LA area and all over Louisiana, such as Kenner, Laplace, Marrero, Houma, Morgan City, and more.


Car donation is a convenient alternative to selling or trading in your vehicle and benefits you and a local child. You will get rid of your old car in a smart and easy way, while also granting the wish of a child in New Orleans.

Car donation is truly the way to go, and you can leave all the work up to us!

  • Our professional service makes the vehicle donation process simple and easy.
  • The knowledge that your vehicle will help a New Orleans child. That's right! The proceeds from generous vehicle donations benefit Make-A-Wish kids in the New Orleans area.


donating Your Vehicle Is a great alternative that helps local families

What do you do when your car has outlived its usefulness? Some people sell old, broken-down cars for parts, while others take them to a junkyard.

Putting your car up for sale can be a hassle. If your car sells fast, you could be giving up value. If it sells slow, you could be spending more on advertising. Plus, once it's sold, you may not even get a fair value for it.

Junking unwanted vehicles will get you a small check. Car donation will get you tax benefits while also helping kids! Plus, you don't have to worry about transportation as we come to you with FREE towing.

But there's another alternative - one that can help make wishes come true for sick children.

You can donate your car and have it directly benefit the Make-A-Wish® Gulf Coast. That is exactly what Wheels For Wishes does every day; we accept car donations and support the reputable and well-known Make-A-Wish Foundation in the New Orleans area.

We take the work out of selling a car by providing free and fast pick-up services, handling all paperwork and providing you with a receipt for your car donation tax deduction. At Wheels For Wishes, each car donation is a wonderful gift.

It's amazing to think that with one simple vehicle donation, you can make a child's wish come true. In fact, at your next visit to the Louisiana Children's Museum, take a look around and notice children who may be fulfilling their wishes.

You can make a difference and give back to children who live in New Orleans, children who have families just like yours.


Making a car donation with Wheels For Wishes is very simple. You start by filling out an online donation form or calling the toll-free number. Then schedule a pick-up or towing for your vehicle and receive a tax-deductible receipt.

There's no need to deal with trying to sell your car for parts or spend money advertising it. And although the reward of having a car donation tax deduction is satisfying, there is nothing better than knowing that you're helping kids with critical illnesses.

It's a wonderful feeling to know that with a simple vehicle donation, you can put a smile on a child's face and fulfill wishes.
